Cascades Packaging has invested in a dryer section rebuild of its PM1 at its Kingsey Falls mill, Canada.

Supplied by Toscotec, the line is expected to achieve an 8% increase in production.

According to the supplier, it will achieve the upgrade without increasing the overall length of the dryer section and without increasing the actual width of the dryers’ frame in cross direction.

The scope of supply includes a number of TTSteelDryers, specifically designed for an operating steam pressure of 14 barg, as well as wire tensioning system, guiding and sheet stabilising components.

Delivery is expected to have occurred by the end of August 2018.

Established in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres.
